Looks very much like the Transocean Marine AJAX that I was on.

This Ajax was built in 1973 by Mitsui SB and E Co, Funjingata, Japan for Ocean Titan Ltd.
16406 Gt, 26,725 Dwt.
She was transferred to Blue funnel Bulkships in 1977 and in 1984 sold to Black Sea shipping in the USSR and renamed Adler.

I sailed on her from Baton Rouge to Novorasisk. In addition to grain I remember taking chewing gum and making a tidy profit!!
